Humboldt County Parks


Humboldt County’s parks and recreation areas are located along the Eel, Van Duzen, Mattole and Mad Rivers and the Pacific Ocean. Included in this system are beaches, virgin redwood groves, boat ramps and fishing accesses. The parks offer camping, day-use, swimming, boating, beachcombing and clamming for the enjoyment of all.

Because of the lack of financial resources, most of the parks are less developed than  ost of the neighboring park systems. However many park users find this a star attra, making their outdoor experience more enjoyable. All campgrounds are equipped with restroom facilities and cold running water. All campsites are on a first-come, first-serve basis only, no reservations are accepted. If litter cans are not at the facility you are enjoying please take your trash with you.
